“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Monday morning Nimrod nitpicking

by | May 6, 2024 | Mondays | 2 comments

Here we go again, yet another Monday to drag ourselves through and beyond… Fortunately, where I am, it is a public holiday. Unfortunately, putting one of these compilations together tends to take quite a long time, so a lot of that free time gets chewed up awfully quickly. Still at all, it IS Monday, so let’s get on with it.

Today’s Great Mondaydact Browser Smasher is all about looking at ancient Biblical history, alongside Mesopotamian legends and texts, to come to some really rather startling conclusions about the world as it was after the Flood, in which Man very rapidly fell back into exactly the same patterns of evil and depravity that doomed the race in the first place:

The early chapters of Genesis get really wild if you take the time to explore them properly. They are actually extremely parsimonious and compact. If you try to understand the original Hebrew, and if you examine the Deuterocanonical texts and the Mesopotamian tablets of around that same time, you will see very strong parallels and common points between all of them.

The world described therein is barely even imaginable to us today. It is a world of tremendous progress, but also one of unspeakable evil. It gives you some idea of just how much work God had to do to straighten out His Creation.

And, think about this, and tremble:

God sent the Flood to cleanse the world of the Nephilim – the unholy offspring of the rebellious Sons of God (i.e. the Watchers) and human women. These creatures were giants, filled with great power and great evil. They so corrupted and polluted the world, that God had to wipe the entire slate clean.

But… a few chapters later, Noah wakes up from a drunken stupor, after Ham sees his nakedness, and curses… Canaan. Not Ham, but Canaan.

Why? Canaan was just a baby at that time. It doesn’t make the slightest bit of sense.

… until you realise that the Nephilim lived on, after the Flood, and that giants appeared centuries later in the land of Canaan (Numbers, Deuteronomy, etc.), in the forms of the Anakim, Rephaim, and other evil creatures. And, as you will find if you read the Scriptures, at least some of those giants had six fingers on each hand, and six toes on each foot (2 Samuel).

What happened, to make Noah curse Canaan so dreadfully?

My guess – and it is only a guess, based on the ideas of other, much smarter people – is that Noah saw Canaan, and noticed that he had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, and realised that the genetic curse of the Nephilim had carried on through the wife of Ham. Therefore, he cursed Canaan.

This also makes sense when you realise the lineage of Nimrod. He was the son of Cush, the son of Ham – which means Nimrod also carried the genetic curse of the Nephilim, through a recessive genetic trait in Ham’s wife. And Nimrod was the first true mighty man on Earth, a great king, who built a true empire.

If you take the Bible seriously – and I do – then that ancient world is one saturated with spiritual power, and full of hidden dangers, which we are in the process of bringing forth again, through our blatant disobedience of God’s will.

The story of Nimrod is a warning to us today. We fail to take heed of it at our great peril.

The Mighty God-Emperor

His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, the Lion of Midnight, may the Lord bless him and preserve him, does not hold back in his thoughts about the latest round of lawfare against him:

To be honest, the God-Emperor is at fault for this, ultimately. He tried to drain the swamp – and he failed. Utterly. Not just because the problem was intractable – but also because he let so many of those self-same swamp creatures into his administration.

It remains to be seen whether he has learned anything from his mistakes. Perhaps he has. I rather doubt it. And I continue to maintain my strong belief that he WILL NOT be permitted to become POTUS again – he is too great an existential threat to the Deep State.

#BasedTucker is Based

Tucker interviews Tucker… That’s probably one you thought you would never see. And yet, the interview with Tucker Max is genuinely superb. Tucker #2 very clearly went on a journey of self-discovery, and landed on some very valid and profound conclusions.

In some ways, Tucker #2’s journey is very similar to that of #BasedTucker himself. If you look at what happened to #BasedTucker, he got fired from FAUX Noose, precisely because he wanted to find the truth for himself, and wasn’t interested in letting his corporate paymasters get in the way of that journey. And look where he is now – with a VASTLY larger platform, a fanatically loyal audience, a thriving media company, and the ability to do and say and think whatever he wants.

This is how God rewards us for pursuing Him, with the whole of our hearts and minds and souls. At first, we suffer greatly, because God has to purge things out of us. It is an extremely unpleasant process. But then, once that purging is done, God uses us in ways we often do not truly understand.

That pattern is precisely what we see with #BasedTucker – and with Tucker #2.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain has lots of great stuff for us this week. We start with one from Moon about the very dark and ugly side of Discord:

Analyze & Optimize obviously are American, hence do not know how to spell properly, but they do have some interesting things to say about why people ate a lot in the 1950s and 1960s, yet were generally fairly thin and healthy:

Mrwhosetheboss explains in detail why every Big Tech company is hell-bent on breaking its own product right now – rather accurately known as “Enshittification”:

This is especially apropos given the recent, massive, controversy over Helldivers 2.

Mind-Expanding Drugs

Universe Inside You discusses the Nephilim, their origins, existence, and capabilities:

Death Smiles At Us All…

Poli-Ticking Off

Mark Dice talks about the rather nasty characters funding the pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses across Amerikhastan:

I certainly do not support what Israel is doing with the Gazacaust, but I am not in the least bit interested in providing any moral legitimacy to these clowns on college campuses, either. I actually attended an Ivy League school, and I have to say, the protests on that campus are just idiotic.

The very-thoroughly-married couple at Redacted say “Hooray for Boobies!!!” – along with the rest of us – while discussing a rather serious point:

PJW cannot quite contain his mirth at the fact that Swedish policewomen have been banging the very gang-members that the Swedish police forces are trying to round up and arrest:

Sweden has to be one of the most poignant examples of LITERAL “Stockholm Syndrome” you will ever see. The whole country seems to be completely cucked out.

Lord Razor of the Fist Clan takes on Brandon’s latest idiotic nonsense about immigration:

Rulings from the Bench

Judge Nap has a few guests missing from his usual roster, but he has kept busy nonetheless. First up, Maj. Scott Ritter explains how Russia is winning, hard, in 404:

Capt. Matthew Hoh talks about how the US government’s attacks on Snowden and Assange, are really attacks on the once-free peoples of the West:

Alistair Crooke discusses the failures of American policy after the end of the Cold War – which was NOT an American victory, as so many, including myself, were fooled into thinking – and the resulting collapse of American hegemony:

Larry Johnson & Ray McGovern review the week’s major developments:

Prof. Jeffrey Sachs says a lot of things about the Pali-Walis that I strongly disagree with, but he does make a very good point about how the recent bill passed in the House is a disaster for Americans:

Prof. John Mearsheimer offers his thoughts on the same issue:

Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, grumpily, about the true meaning of the House of Trade Union Workers fire in Odessa, in 2014, which in many ways kicked over the hornets’ nest that became the Banderastan War:

Ukrainian nationalism is a real thing, and it is a very ugly phenomenon. It dates back decades if not CENTURIES, but because “Ukraine”, as it exists today (or rather, existed), was NEVER a real coherent state, the Ukronazis had to flat-out make up vast amounts of their own history to justify the existence of a country that, in reality, had no basis in fact.

Today’s Ukraine was never a realistic or sustainable nation, because it was always a Frankenstein’s Monster, stitched out of carved-up bits of various other REAL nations. The Russians are taking back what was always rightfully theirs – they didn’t want to, but the Empire of Lies has forced them to do it.

And now here we are, in a situation where upwards of TWO MILLION Ukrainians are dead or severely wounded.

Margin of Victory

Col. Douglas Macgregor tells it straight about the US$61B boondoggle aid bill for 404:

Tha Dizzle points out the rather sinister undercurrents behind the attack on Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel – which cost a good man his eye, and the dipshit attacker his fingers:

Dr. Jay Smith from PfanderFilms and Mel from Sneaker’s Corner explain how and why Mo’Lester the Paedophile Profit came to be:

Christian Prince has perhaps a little too much fun smacking around Muzzies for believing in their ridiculous death-cult – the Ahmaddiyahs, in particular, come in for heavy criticism, because they are, if anything, even MORE absurd than mainstream Izzlamists:

Sam Shamoun shows followers of the Fake Religion of Pieces why it is a very, very bad idea to take him on when discussing the Bible:

And here is a longer video, in which Sam witnesses to a (really rather lovely) Swedish blonde “revert” to Izzlam, who was questioning her beliefs – the results are magnificent to behold:

Almost False talks to a literal ex-Luciferian, who narrates some truly terrifying stories about how Satan’s kingdom works – and warns against New Age thought:

Christ at Speaker’s Corner unpacks this whole mishegoss of “Koranic variants”, which is in fact extremely destructive to the entire insane ideology of Izzlam:

This problem is not new. It has been around for well over a thousand years. Muslims STILL, TO THIS DAY, have no answer to it. There is no equivalent to this issue in Christianity, because we do not make the kinds of insane claims they do.

Islam Critiqued unpacks the ways in which the original authors of the Koran – yes, authors, PLURAL – straight-up stole things from other sources to compile their book:

This, too, is not new, at all. If you read the Koran, you will come across all sorts of nonsensical stories that seem to have been ripped off from other stories – and that is because they were. The Koran is not some sort of unique revelation. It is in fact a grab-bag of different things from various different sources, and was very obviously assembled by men, acting in their own interests, NOT by Divine inspiration.

Manly Men of Manliness

hoe_math takes on this absolutely bonkers new idea that women are safer around bears than men:

Joker from Better Bachelor goes into some charty goodness on the stats around OnlyFools creators and how much they make – and then dives into some rather interesting data on the key consumers of “content” from that thirst-trap platform:

Alexander Grace discusses hoeflation:

Burn Paedowood to the Ground

Midnight’s Edge wonders what will happen to Masters of the Universe now that Amazog has their dirty claws in the IP:

Given how Netherflix and Kevin Smith essentially gang-raped the original Lou Scheimer cartoon series, I have very low expectations, and given Amazog’s track record, I think they will blast through rock-bottom and start drilling.

Overlord Dicktor Van Doomcock cannot contain his glee at watching the House of the Devil Mouse getting destroyed by a show that actually tells the story of His Hugeness properly:

Gary from Nerdrotic talks Doctor Who Cares:

The Critical Drinker does a scene study of what may, indeed, be perhaps the most idiotic thing ever filmed in Rebel Moon Part 2:

I used to really like Zack Snyder’s work. As far as I am concerned, 300 remains one of the most outrageously brilliant movies ever made. But everything he has done since then has… well, SUCKED.

Reading Too Much Into Things

Your Science is F***ing Weird moment of the week is from Veritasium, and it looks at the weirdness of General Relativity (which is to say, a generalised theory of gravity):

Your long read of the week is an excellent, if flawed, article from LTC Alex Vershinin about the real nature of modern warfare, and how the West is simply not prepared for it:

The modern battlefield is an integrated system of systems which includes various types of electronic warfare (EW), three basic types of air defences, four different types of artillery, countless aircraft types, strike and reconnaissance drones, construction and sapper engineers, traditional infantry, armour formations and, above all, logistics. Artillery has become more dangerous thanks to increased ranges and advanced targeting, stretching the depth of the battlefield.

In practice, this means it is easier to mass fires than forces. Deep manoeuvre, which requires the massing of combat power, is no longer possible because any massed force will be destroyed by indirect fires before it can achieve success in depth. Instead, a ground offensive requires a tight protective bubble to ward off enemy strike systems. This bubble is generated through layering friendly counter-fire, air defence and EW assets. Moving numerous interdependent systems is highly complicated and unlikely to be successful. Shallow attacks along the forward line of troops are most likely to be successful at an acceptable cost ratio; attempts at deep penetration will be exposed to massed fires the moment they exit the protection of the defensive bubble.

Integration of these overlapping assets requires centralised planning and exceptionally well-trained staff officers, capable of integrating multiple capabilities on the fly. It takes years to train such officers, and even combat experience does not generate such skills in a short time. Checklists and mandatory procedures can alleviate these deficiencies, but only on a less-complicated, static front. Dynamic offensive operations require fast reaction times, which semi-trained officers are incapable of performing.

An example of this complexity is an attack by a platoon of 30 soldiers. This would require EW systems to jam enemy drones; another EW system to jam enemy communications preventing adjustment of enemy fires; and a third EW system to jam space navigation systems denying use of precision guided munitions. In addition, fires require counterbattery radars to defeat enemy artillery. Further complicating planning is the fact that enemy EW will locate and destroy any friendly radar or EW emitter that is emitting for too long. Engineers will have to clear paths through minefields, while friendly drones provide time-sensitive ISR and fire support if needed. (This task requires a great deal of training with the supporting units to avoid dropping munitions on friendly attacking troops.) Finally, artillery needs to provide support both on the objective and enemy rear, targeting reserves and suppressing artillery. All these systems need to work as an integrated team just to support 30 men in several vehicles attacking another 30 men or less. A lack of coordination between these assets will result in failed attacks and horrific losses without ever seeing the enemy. As the size of formation conducting operations increases, so do the number and complexity of assets that need to be integrated.

Everything he writes in that article, about the nature of attrition warfare, is old hat to the Russians. They have been studying this stuff since the days of Svechin and Isserson. It should not even be news to the West, but it is, not least because the Western armies have configured themselves for fighting low-intensity wars against goathumpers and scattered tribes with no air defence, no serious industrial capacity, and very limited artillery support.

That is NOT the Russian military – or the Chinese, for that matter.

The flaws in the article come from the nonsense that Vershinin spews about the Soviet, and then Russian, militaries not having a serious NCO corps. No less than Grandpa Grumpuss himself has repeatedly debunked this notion.

And that is before Vershinin goes into the notion of a “high-low mix” – which is precisely the sort of deluded thinking that financed colossal boondoggles like the F-35 Turducken Plane, supposedly the cheaper, simpler, and more affordable counterpart to the super-advanced, exceptionally capable, hyper-powerful F-22.

That high-low idea has never really worked out very well in practice – even the F-15 and F-16 pairing is not a particularly good example, because of the extreme maintenance requirements of the former, and the relatively limited capabilities of the latter.

The return of conscription to the Western nations will be hugely unpopular. It will also be utterly impractical, because there is no industrial base in the West to support vast numbers of conscripts.

Finally, Vershinin appears to treat manoeuvre separately from attrition. This is a false dichotomy. As Col. Jacques Baud pointed out in his brilliant book on the Russian art of warfighting, attrition and manoeuvre are complementary. Attrition, as outlined by Svechin, both provides a highly effective counter to manoeuvre, and creates the conditions required for rapid breakthrough operations – in line with the classic “Deep Operations” doctrine of Isserson.

Thot Shots

And here is the Instathot to get the week off to a cheeky start (as it were). This here is Muri López Benítez, age 25 from Argentina. She is best known for being the (very) glamorous girlfriend of a sportzballist who plays for Manchester United (a team with which I am highly familiar, though not at all voluntarily), and for the national team. She does… well, whatever a WAG – that is the technical term, evidently – does, which evidently amounts to taking a lot of photos in very expensive places.

On the plus side, apparently she has been with her man since they were both 14, and believed in him and supported him even when he was an unknown kickballist, so that speaks quite well for her.

Right, that’s it, shove off back to work now.

    Re Noah’s curse. Why Canaan and not Ham?


    Nutshell: Heiser’s take is that Ham raped his mother as a power play over a drunk Noah. Canaan was the offspring of that interaction. Dealt with in the Torah later, boinking someone besides your wife will make problems. In this case, Ham opened the door or partnered with the fallen to reseed creation with the seeds of the serpent/Nephilim/giants,

    A different perspective, a similar outcome from your rundown at the top. Stuff that should be taught in church.

  2. furor kek tonicus ( go ask Amalek )

    But… a few chapters later, Noah wakes up from a drunken stupor, after Ham sees his nakedness, and curses… Canaan. Not Ham, but Canaan.

    Why? Canaan was just a baby at that time. It doesn’t make the slightest bit of sense.
    the Bible is full of poetic language, ie -not meant to be taken literally, although often a very precise allusion to a very specific concept.
    therefore, it is useful to explore the concept of “uncovering nakedness” elsewhere in the OT and see what we find.
    6 ‘None of you shall approach anyone who is near of kin to him, to uncover his nakedness: I am the Lord. 7 The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. 8 The nakedness of your father’s wife you shall not uncover; it is your father’s nakedness. 9 The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover. 10 The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for theirs is your own nakedness. 11 The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, begotten by your father—she is your sister—you shall not uncover her nakedness. 12 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister; she is near of kin to your father. 13 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is near of kin to your mother. 14 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s brother. You shall not approach his wife; she is your aunt. 15 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law—she is your son’s wife—you shall not uncover her nakedness. 16 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife; it is your brother’s nakedness. 17 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, nor shall you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are near of kin to her. It is wickedness. 18 Nor shall you take a woman as a rival to her sister, to uncover her nakedness while the other is alive.

    19 ‘Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. 20 Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. 21 And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.

    24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit[c] the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. 26 You shall therefore [d]keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), 28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be [e]cut off from among their people.
    other translations discard the poetic language of the KJV in Leviticus, and just baldly state that this is a list of people you’re not supposed to be having sex with. on pain of death. which necessarily obscures the actual meaning of that post Flood interlude.
    and which also raises the point that Noah failed to kill Ham for his sin of incest.
    now we turn to the specific question of “why Canaan”?
    you will note that it is stated repeatedly that Ham is the father of Canaan. what is NOT said?
    – it does not say that Canaan has yet been born
    – it does not mention any of Canaan’s brothers, which is curious as Canaan is the LAST of Ham’s sons to be listed in Gen 10. obviously implying that Canaan is the youngest. also implying that something was done to prevent Ham fathering any more children.
    i would not say that i have demonstrated a “proof” that Naamah was Canaan’s mother. but it doesn’t look good.
